Racial Slurs

Origins of Racist Terms (or here)
Massive list of the etymology of racist terms. Never before has such a cesspool of virulent racism been so interesting. Little did I know that there are many slurs for Canadians. I've never heard them before, then again, I'm Canadian -- nobody would slur me, for they know I would pop a cap in their ass.

Here's an excerpt of the Canada-related slurs. I've censored some of them so I have less explaining to do next time I visit my mother...

51st Stater Canadians Self-explanatory.
Angie Canadians English-speaking Canadians. Short for "Anglophone" and used in Quebec, especially for Anglophones in Quebec province itself.
Beaver-Beater French- Canadians Fur trade.
Canadian Blacks Used as a masked replacement for 'N*****.'
Cani**** Black Canadians Combination of Canadian and N*****.
Cankee/Cankie Canadians Canadian-Yankee.
Canuck Canadians From Johnny Canuck, emerging in 1869 as a "younger, simpler cousin to America's Uncle Sam or Britain's John Bull." Reborn during World War II as Canada's 'defender from the Nazi menace.' Could only be a slur if you say it the right way.
Canucklehead Canadians Diminutive of Canuck.
Cheeser Canadians Used primarily in northern Washington State, refers to Canadians who cross the border to shop for big blocks of inexpensive American Cheese.
Coon Ass Cajuns French-Canadian Exiles who migrated to Louisiana. Fur traders. Originated during WW2 when the French soldiers heard the Cajun-French American forces speaking a very old version of the French language peppered with slang, they called them 'conasse', which translates roughly to mean 'cheap whore'. Of course the other non-Cajun members of the American forces heard this as "Coon Ass", and it stuck.
Eh-Holes Canadians Canadians are known for saying 'eh?' a lot.
Frostback Canadians A play on "wetback", altered to fit Canadians.
Hoser Canadians From western-Canadian practice of stealing gas with a siphon, ending up with a mouthful of gasoline. Suggests low intelligence. On the Canadian TV show SCTV, "Bob and Doug McKenzie" always called each other Hosers.
Ice N***** Canadians Canadian Blacks. It's cold in Canada. Coined by comedian Scott Thompson from the Kids in the Hall.

Canadians Another take on frozen Wetback. See Frostback.
Maple Leaf N***** Canadians Their flag has a maple leaf on it.
Moosef***** Canadians Tom Green, a Canadian, mocked sexual contact with a moose on his television show.
Newfie Canadians Newfoundlanders. Some of the people from Newfoundland are considered to be less intelligent.
Nigloo Blacks In northern Canada, it refers to Blacks living way up north in the cold with the Eskimos.
Puckhead Canadians For their love of hockey.
Rubberhead Canadians Heads bounce off ice in hockey games.
Seal-F***** Canadians Extension of sheep-f*****, roo-f*****, etc.
Snowback Canadians Play on 'wet-back'.
